Hi Chuck
You are correct in assuming AAB utilized all of her training and acquired 
knowledge in the Esoteric Section to work with her additional contributions. I 
am familiar with the esoteric work of the Theosophical society and what AAB 
wrote and she does expand and take these concepts into new and expanded areas.
This is whyÂI continually ask those who doubt this possibility to study the 
material of AAB's themselves and come to their own conclusions.

Thanks Chuck for your continued support of hilarity, parody, farce, satire, 
occult street theaterÂand humor. We all take this work way to seriously and you 
keep us honest.
Best Duane

Well, never actually having seen the ES material I have no personal grounds 
for making a comparison, only being able to say that I never heard anyone 
in the ES laugh at the comment.

I think the key came in an brief exchange in the Olcott Library many years 
ago. An elderly lady was staying at Olcott for a short time, doing 
something Theosophical, and she came into the library walked into the stacks and 

asked why the writings of Alice Bailey were there, not because of any 
objection to what they said, but because, as she said, they were all stolen from 

the Esoteric Section teachings.

That alone would send them up the walls and over the battlements.

This was a very contemporary article to have been written a hundred years 
ago! As for the "dethroning of popes" that still is the main thing needed 
IMO. But now in addition to an authoritarian mindset on behalf of the 
current leadership, the popes of 100 years ago are untouchable, beyond 

still enthroned even though long dead. 

I would think that Morten and I agree about the relative value of the 
writings of Leadbeater and Bailey compared to those of HPB. I'd be equally 
disinclined to spend time on either one, but if others in a group wanted to 
study them would not object, just skip those classes. But the difference in 
the TS is that nothing negative can ever said about the former, nothing 
positive about the latter, without making The Powers That Be extremely 
uncomfortable. What is it about Bailey in particular that creates such a 

atmosphere throughout the TS?
